The owner of the comic book store tells you that the patient is a regular and spends a few hours a day in the shop. He lives near by and walks over. He also tells you that the man’s bother is on his way over. When you reach out to make contact and introduce yourself, the patient pulls away and does not uncover his eyes. You tell him your name and he repeats it over and over.

You ask why he has his eyes covered and he points toward the front window where the Fire truck and Ambulance are parked with the lights flashing. You start asking him questions and he does not respond. He just continues rocking and saying your name. When you go to place the blood pressure cuff on his arm he rips it off and yells no. The brother arrives and tells you that the patient takes Ritalin and uses lavender and chamomile to help him relax. In talking to the brother you decide the patient needs to be transported.

Patient Scenario #3

You are dispatched to a home for a woman having a seizure. You arrive to find a 16-year old female lying next to a wheel chair. You notice that her limbs are all flexed and her mouth is open. The patient is trying to turn her head to look at you but is struggling to support it and coordinate the movement. The patient’s mother states that the patient was in her wheel chair when the seizure began. The patient then fell out of the chair.

They called because the family was nervous about a head injury from the fall. You begin assessing and notice little marks on the patient’s shoulders and back that look like injection sites. The mother says that they are from aligning the patient’s energy to help her maintain her strengthen better. You determine that she needs to be transported.

Patient Scenario #4

You are dispatched to a motor vehicle collision. You find only one patient, a 60 year-old male complaining of chest pain. He struck his chest against the steering wheel. The patient very politely requests that a male EMT assess and treat him.

As you are asking him history questions you find out that he is a vegetarian and currently participating in Ramadan. The patient keeps trying to look at their phone and watch. He is becoming anxious and requests to pray. As you are doing a physical exam you notice several perfectly round, slightly raised bruises on his back. They seem to be in a purposeful pattern. You ask the patient about them and he explains that he had recently cleansed his blood. You determine that he needs to be transported.

Patient Scenario #5

You are dispatched to a residence for a fall. When you arrive a mid 70 year-old female meets you on the front porch. She tells you that her 77 year-old husband has fallen and she cannot lift him to get him up off the floor. You enter the home and find a clean, well taken care of room with older obviously loved furniture. You also see baskets of magazines and newspapers.

Every surface seems to have a figurine or plant. The floors are hardwood with area rugs everywhere. You find the patient lying on their side in the hallway. You introduce yourself and the patient asks you who the older woman with you is. You explain that it is his wife. He then asks what happened. After explaining that he fell the patient becomes emotional. You calm them down and begin a physical exam.

The patient continues to ask what happened every few minutes. They also keep reaching for your stethoscope and rubbing your EMS patch. Suddenly, in a panicked voice they ask for their wife. You get her and it calms the patient down. You ask about medications and the wife begins to list prescriptions. She seems nervous and keeps looking around. She asks if the police are there. You respond that they are not present. She then whispers that they smoke some stuff that their grandson gets for them several times a day. It helps them relax and helps the patient be more present. You determine that the patient’s injuries are significant enough to transport them.
